This paper describes a simple indoor positioning system that uses ultrasonic and RF technologies, and further out-lines research which has been enabled by the system. Existing indoor systems are expensive and have substantial user or physical impacts. This system is inexpensive and has minimal impact. It has been used at the University of Sussex to help understand how children collaboratively explore mixed reality spaces, and it has also assisted with research into digital and physical co-visiting in the Mackintosh Interpretation Centre of the Lighthouse in Glasgow.
